It is the big Independence Day weekend. Friday (Aug 15) being public holiday, it is going to be huge at the box-office. Suriya's Anjaan is getting almost a solo release as it is hitting 450 plus screens in Tamil Nadu, and is the most preferred by exhibitors.
Parthiban's Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam is releasing in limited screens, but giving a decent opposition to Anjaan. The other Tamil release is the little known Snehavin Kathalar, which is releasing in a few screens.
The three day holiday opening for Anjaan will be huge as all screens have announced five shows for the weekend. The other language major release is Rohit Shetty's Ajay Devgn actioner Singham Returns. The lone Telugu release is Lovers and in Malayalam there is Velivelichathil.
